Fulani Again Attack 6 Plateau villages, Kill Scores, Burn Houses

Nigerian Police have confirmed fresh cases of supposed Fulani attacks in Bassa Local Government Area, northwest of Jos Plateau State capital.

The latest in a series of five in the LGA since the September 7, 2017 attack in Ancha village is an attack in Nzhwierevhi village, last night where at least two people were reportedly killed.

The Nzhwierevhi attack comes few hours after a similar attack in Wereh village, Barkin Ladi LGA, South of Jos where a former Head of Service in the State, Moses Gwom, a soldier and one other civilian were killed.

Shortly before then, similar incidences were reported in Nnkie Donkwhro, Kpachudu and Zanrwa villages near Jebu Miango in Bassa where at least three persons were reportedly killed and about 12 houses burnt down.

Women in the locality had earlier in the week staged a peaceful demonstration to demand for proper security and investigation into incidences of attacks in the villages.

Similarly, the government of the state has severally released statements appealing for calm and calling securities to investigate the killings in the state.

However, only recently was a gang of Fulani gunmen arrested in Riyom when they reportedly attacked some travelers.

The Plateau State Police Public Relations Officer, Mathias Terna in a telephone interview said the police were doing their best to secure the lives of the citizens against further attacks.

“We have been doing our best since the Ancha village incident and we are not resting until we bring this problem to an end,” he said.

He however cautioned citizens against taking laws into their hands.

He said, “My advice to the public is that we should not always take the laws into our hands.

"We have the police and the law courts.

"If you feel that someone has trampled on your rights, you should report it.”
